How to make healthy carrot bread

Sep 23, 2012 No Comments by

I guess the autumn has started where you live as well? Over here it’s been rainy and cold all weekend, but that’s ok, because it gives me more time and inspiration for one of my hobbies. Baking to be more specific…

I love baking and even though I enjoy baking cupcakes, cakes and cookies, I have to admit that nothing compares to homemade bread. I love eating fresh and healthy bread, especially when it’s still warm and the butter melts on it.

Some types of bread are healthier than other and I have to tell you about my favourite type of bread, carrot bread! It’s healthy and it’s real tasty. Amazing! It’s simple to follow the recipe and I can assure you that the bread will be a lot tastier than the bread that can be bought in store. Give it a try!

 

Carrot bread

Ingredients:

2 cups grated carrots
3 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 large eggs
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk

3/4 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees. Prepare two loaf pans by greasing them or use parchment paper.

1. Grate the carrots and set aside.
2. Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
3. Whip the eggs together in a medium bowl. Stir the sugar in and then add the oil, extract, and milk.
4. Add the wet mixture to the dry ingredients and add the carrots and nuts. Mix until combined.
5. Divide the batter between the two loaf pans. Bake on the top shelf of the oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until the loaves are done (which can be seen if you stick a fork in the middle of the loaves). Remove the loaves from the pans and cool on wire racks.

My name is Tezz and I'm a 29-years-old mother of 2. I spend most of my time at soccer practice, hockey practice or floor ball practice with my sons, but I also enjoy exercising myself. I love zumba, aerobics, jogging and of course power walking. My interest in health and training has grown since I became a mom. It all started when I wanted to lose a few extra pounds that I gained during my pregnancies, but it increased to become an honest interest in exercising and today I find it important to have a healthy lifestyle. I've also worked as a skincare consultant for a couple of years and I love beauty related topics just as much as health related topics. I love makeup and skincare and I'm looking forward to share my hobbies with you!
